Once the install is complete go to the Devices and Printers screen and click on the new printer.
Click Customize your Printer, change the name if you prefer and then on the ports tab. Mine is
set to Protocol "Raw", Port Number 9100, Community Name "public". The only other thing I may be
doing differently is that I have set the printer to auto-show the print preview before printing.
Yes, its an additional click but it seemed to have made all the difference in my case. It also
gives you the chance to correct something like printing a second page with just a header URL, etc.

I realize that time is a luxury and not everyone has a lot of it, especially for trivial tasks
like addressing antiquated equipment compatibility issues after an upgrade, but I firmly believe
if you say can't enough, you WON'T. But for those who enjoy a challenge occasionally I hope this
points you in the right direction. Good luck

DLINK DP-300U. Desktop shows printer offline, Laptop prints OK.


First thing.. plug printer directly into PC.. does it work? .. if so its is a port setting. If now it is the device config on PC

If Port Setting Issues.. are you going through any other devices on the network or is you firewall blocking the IP.

If device Config issue check to see it is setup up as an IP Port not a normal local port

Did you try using LPR mode instead? I find it works more relyable with any print server. SMB (windows network mode) is ****. I have had simalar problems with another printserver.

PSUS4 problem "talking" to Canon S330


Hi dreaddymck
I need a little more information on the setup. Is there a router in your network? If there is, is your PrintServer connected to the router and your computer is attempting to connect to the printserver through the router? If there is no router and your PrintServer is connected to your printer via the USB port and your computer is connected to one of the ports on the PrintServer via a cat5 cable, I would check to see whether you are actually communicating with the PrinterServer by pinging its IP address from the computer. If the ping is successful, then I would look at the printer properties in your computer's printer control panel and check the port configuration. Usually it is shows the IP address, port 9100 and port protocol is usually set to RAW. Otherwise I would attempt to reinstall the PrintServer using the CD originally provided. It appears to me that the server may not be publishing its IP address on your network.
